The 8x2 features three operating modes:
- Overlap mode that allows you to overlap one audio source with another while thebutton for the second source is held down. Both channels will be fed to the output until the second button is released, at which time the first audio source will be switched off.
- Mix mode allows any or all channels to be connected (mixed) to either output channel.
- Interlock mode provides that when a channel button on the switcher is pressed, the first audio source will be immediately turned off and the second audio source will beturned on.
Another user selectable feature is the way the 8x2 will act when power is first applied (or re-applied after a power failure). You have your choice of having all channels being OFF on power-up or any or all of the eight input channels being assigned to either or both of the two output channels at power-up.
